The King Chulalongkorn Memorial Building
In 1897, King Chulalongkorn of Siam (present-day Thailand) visited Sweden and Ragunda municipality. Almost exactly one hundred years later, the construction of a memorial building in honour of the King was commenced. This is the story of the Thai pavilion in Utanede.
In 1868, King Chulalongkorn ascended the throne of Siam. He was a loved and admired king, not least because he abolished slavery in his native country. King Chulalongkorn was the fifth king of his dynasty and was therefore called "Rama V Chulalongkorn of Siam". He was very dedicated to the development of his country, and he worked hard to give it a modern structure. This work took him on many voyages around the world.
